Hi, all--<br><br>
I hope you don't mind a weight loss newbie starting this thread. I've decided to join you!<br><br>
Shortish term weight loss goal: 13 pounds<br>
Loooong term weight loss goal: 33 pounds<br>
Secret weight loss goal: 53 pounds<br><br>
This week's challenge for me: drink more water. I tend only to drink at meals, so I need to bump that up during the day.<br><br>
Good luck to all this week!

Hi Prae <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Good luck with your goals!<br><br>
I put in a little extra effort this weekend, and decided to weigh in again this morning (I normally do on Fridays).<br>
Down 1.4 over the weekend, so provided I can hold on to it, I've broken through the plateau... for now.<br><br>
I forget if I've stated my goals before, or not...<br>
short term: 20lbs<br>
long term:60lbs
Hey, all.<br>
I lost 2 lbs, but the are the 2 that I gained last week. So I am officially down 2 for the month or so we have been reporting.<br>
Looking forward to a solid week of training and eating!<br>
Make it a great day!
Another week.<br><br>
I'm too scared to step on the scale. Things are fitting better but that doesn't mean the number on the scale is going to reflect that.<br><br>
So this week, I'll stick with food as fuel, not entertainment. And, I'm going to get back into regularly - routinely exercising.
Hi everyone. I hope you don't mind my joining you. Since I started running (June), I've lost 10 pounds.<br><br>
My short term goal is 5lbs by the end of Nov.<br>
My longer term goal is another 10lbs by Jan1st (if I can hold off over the holidays)<br>
My ultimate goal is to lose 30 more lbs.<br><br>
Today... I've had a yogurt, an apple, a few (less than 10) grapes, 1 bottle of water (so far - working on the second one), and a tiny box of raisins. Okay... I also had a bite size, Mr. Goodbar from one of the ladies on another floor of my office. I didn't get to run this a.m. like I normally would, because it was raining so hard. Hopefully, I'll be able to get in 3 miles tonight.
OK, I am down 4 overall, but it's not exactly where I want to be. I have been doing better with portion control, so this week is...<br><br><span style="color:#FF0000;">HYDRATION!!!!</span>
I think I am dropping out and giving up. Being accountable hasn't helped me at all. Bleh.<br><br>
Maybe I just need to put that pic of Jillian on my fridge! That would be motivating!
Dude!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="hello1"><br><br>
I'm not 30 yet (will be in March). Can I join you guys, or do I have to wait?<br><br>
My short term goal is to get to 180. I'm at 188 according to my scale, and 191 according to my WW scale. (I can't believe I'm telling someone this number)<br><br>
My long term goal is to get to about 150-155, which shouold put me in the right area body fat wise.<br><br>
I just started going to Weight Watcher meetings, so I'm hoping that this extra accountability will help me stick with it. I lost a bunch of weight sevreal years ago, but it leveled off and I got complacent. Right now I need to focus on eating right since I'm not able to do much exercise.
<b>Wyrillco</b>, 30s is a state of mind around here, welcome!<br><br> and I are also around the same weight with similar goals, so even more welcome from me!<br><br>
However, this is <b>T-5</b> days for the wedding I was hoping to lose 10 lbs for...not a lb missing on this girl! Oh well, I'm going to have a blast nonetheless. But I need to do something to up the accountability - I'm with you, <b>Theia</b>, this isn't motivating me to stay the course.<br><br>
Maybe if you guys could berate me, or make me feel guilty? That usually does the trick...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
At least my running is up to 20+ miles, so if I don't increase my food intake while my mileage is up, I at least won't be at risk of gaining more than the necessary gains from two weddings in two days...
No loss for me since we started doing these threads. I have done better with hydration, but that only seems to work when I am at work and have the bottle of water at arms reach at all times. Last week I started my vacation and I know I have not been drinking enough water.<br><br>
I think tomorrow morning I might re-join WW online and try to make it work for me again.
Didnt hit the scale ( or the board much ) yesterday.<br><br>
Weighed in this morning and I lost half a pound. Kinda surprised. Didnt overeat or anything but had my nephews birthday party Sunday night and thats not always too good for someone trying to shed some pounds <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Welcome to the new folks, oh and <b>Theia</b> you cant quit.
Umm....I've held onto it.<br><br>
And then some.<br><br><br><br><i>Just keep swimming...just keep swimming...</i>
Excellent job, <b>HH</b>! I've finally started to see a drop in the numbers after 3 months of running. I hope this downward spiral continues!<br><br><br><i>Fort hose</i> of you for whom this is not working. . .anything we can do to provide support, public shaming, or anything else to help you?
Congrats to you too, <b>Prae</b>! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
So the final tally since last Friday...<br>
-5 lbs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="cheers">
Woohoo HH! Evidently that plateau was en route to a major downhill!
Ok I rejoined WW online today since it is payday. I can't do meetings because of my work schedule so I do it all online. I am going to give myself until Monday to not worry about the points, but I am starting fresh on Monday morning. I think this time around instead of counting a day as when I wake up to when I go to bed, I will do it as a regular calender day. That might help with the extra hunger I have the day after a long run. Wish me luck everyone. I really want to loose the 15lbs I have re-gained since I originally hit my goal in March of 2006..
HH - congrats on getting past the plateau. WTG
Good luck, <b>Kini.</b> I know you can do it!!
